Unless they stop using the key, it's theft.

its not a crack, it is ilegal. you are just using your friend serial number. dont worry about it, unless you are planning to use it in a office, but for home use, who cares!.

In addition to the above, please note that you and especially your friend may run out of activations. Without activation of the product, you will not be able to download security updates from Microsoft and your XP will expire in 30 days.

What you are describing is plain & simple Illegal as per the MS EULA that you are supposed to accept before installing Windows.

Also unless the systems are effectively the same you will not be able to activate over the Internet and you'll need to ring MS for an Activation Code which will not be fort coming from MS if you simply tell them that you are installing the product on your hardware.
